The celebration took part the whole day. We realized that this 6th of August is the national independence day but there are several other dates celebrated in different cities, as e.g in La Paz the 16th of July, and in small towns throughout the country, you will find colorful indigenous festivals on or near the summer solstice (June 21).

Sucre, Charcas, La Plata, Ciudad Blanca de Bolivia
"Sucre the other capital of Bolivia"
A bit of history about Sucre's many names:
The Inca Empire was known to have silver (=plata) there, thus the Spaniards formed a settlement called "Villa de Plata", which later was known as La Plata. Then in 1559 La Plata became the seat of the Audiencia of Charcas, part of the vice-regency of Peru. The region extended from Buenos Aires (Argentina) to La Paz, thus La Plata was known as Charcas. in 1625 with the creation of the oldest University in las Americas "La Universidad Real y Pontificia de San Francisco Xavier", which specialices in Law, Sucre became the birthplace of Bolivian Independence. Just in case, the name Sucre comes after the first president of Bolivia Antonio Jose de Sucre, who fought along with Bolivar.
